Omaha Man Sentenced to 120 Months Prison for Attempted Access with Intent to View Child Pornography

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Angel Garcia, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on June 24, 2024, in federal court in Lincoln, Nebraska for attempting to access with intent to view child pornography after having previously been convicted of a child pornography offense. Senior United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Garcia to 120 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After Garcia is released from prison, he will begin a 7-year term of supervised release.

In 2023, Garcia was on supervised release, following a federal conviction for receiving and distributing child pornography. Concerned about how Garcia was doing on supervised release, probation conducted a search of his residence, which located internet capable devices Garcia was not allowed to possess per the terms of his supervision.

A forensic review of those devices located evidence that Garcia was attempting to access child pornography online. Several keywords, associated with child pornography, were located on websites Garcia had accessed, as well as specific websites dedicated to conversations about child sexual abuse. The forensic review also found that a media player application on the device had played videos with names indicative of child pornography.

This case was investigated by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Probation Office.
